it done. so they say about 44 billion. that is one-half percent of the federal budget. so, look, this -- the whole sequester, it's stupid, was designed in a way to the crude and unpalatable to both sides. obviously a smarter way to do this. what both sides do is to sit down and give the administration more flexibility or figure out how to shifted around in accounts, but there is no reason that we cannot -- [talking over each other] gerri: absolutely not. just to show you some numbers. we're talking about, 85 billion, were they to get that much stuff , have a percent. this is nothing, the menace. we should mention here that congress and all of this is protecting their own pay, by the way. >> if we can't about 3%, we might as well declare a national bankruptcy right now. and, again, there is more intelligent ways to do this.
